Day 1: Arrival in Amman, Airport pick-up
Welcome to the 4-day Petra tours from Amman. Our local representative will pick you up at the Queen Alia International Airport in Amman and take you to the hotel. You can have a good rest or stroll around. Amman, a mountain city with a long history, is the capital of Jordan. Since it is located on the seven hills, it is also known as "City of Seven Hills".

Day 2: Private transfer to Petra, with stops in Madaba, Mt. Nebo, Wadi Mujib, Kerak
Start the Amman to Petra tour this day. After a night of rest, you ushered in an energetic morning. After breakfast in the hotel, the English-speaking driver will pick you up on time and follow the King's Road to Madaba, the "Mosaic City". The most famous in the area is the mosaic map of the Middle East on the ground of St. George's Church, the oldest surviving map of the Middle East in the world. Mount Nebo, 8 km (5mi) away from Madaba, is one of Jordan's holy places. It is said that Moses looked at the "promised land" here. The top of the Mount Nebo is 817 meters (2,680 feet) above sea level. Standing on the observation deck, you can see the Jordan Plain and the Jordan River.

The next stop is Kerak Castle. You will first pass by Wadi Mujib, stop and take photos, and then arrive at the Kerak Castle. During the Crusades, Kerak gained important strategic value because of its geographical location. Finally, you will arrive in Petra and stay overnight there.
